Ian Peebles

I completed my Ph.D. in Penn's philosophy department, while also studying social, cognitive, and affective neuroscience in Penn's Center for Neuroscience and Society.  My primary research interests are in ethics (especially bio/neuroethics) and the philosophy of race.  More specifically, I am interested in the ethics of neuroenhancements and the role of race theory in medicine and neuroscience.  I am also interested in (neo-)Aristotelian virtue ethics.

Beginning July 2022, I will serve as the Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate of Bioethics for Princeton University's Center of Human Values.

Outside of philosophy, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors (usually playing sports), dancing, watching all things comedy related, and nerding out about superhero lore.
